their government for redress, and to awaken america's long-slumbering conscience. we rightly and best remember dr. king's soaring oratory that day, how he gave mighty voice to the quiet hopes of millions, how he offered a salvation path for oppressed and oppressors alike. his words belong to the ages possessing a power and prophesy unmatched in our time. but we would do well to recall that day itself also belonged to those ordinary people whose named never appeared in the history books, never got on tv. many had gone to segregated schools and sat at segregated lunch counters. they lived in towns where they couldn't vote and cities where their votes didn't matter. there were couples in love who couldn't marry, soldiers who fought for freedom abroad that they found denied to them at home. they had seen loved ones beaten and children fire hosed, and they had every reason to lash out in anger or resign themselves to a bitter fate. and yet they chose a different path. in the face of hatred, they prayed for their tormenters. in the face of violence, they stood up and sat in with the moral force of nonv

to america's calculus vis-a-vis syria right now? >> i mean, let me be blunt. if the united states decides to strike against syria, this would be an american operation. america would take ownership of this particular operation. american operation without a u.n. security council resolution, a u.s. operation without the final report by the u.n. inspectors, a u.s. operation without a broadly based coalition. france said it would join the united states. turkey and saudi arabia and qatar. but they have been the spearhead of the fight against the assad regime. thus, the united states would be joining the anti-assad regime. the reality is regardless of how you -- we try to really explain the american operation, few in the region -- and i'm talking about the middle east and the muslim world -- would see this operation as an american operation. regardless of how important the u.s. evidence is, and it's very powerful evidence against the assad regime, the consequences, i think, would be very pivotal, both for the region and i think for america's interests in that part of the world. >> professor, yes

in alex rodriguez playing for the new york yankees, the biggest professional sports team in north america, is not a good look. i think that's what major league baseball is most afraid of. bud selig in particular. >> that's why we're spending so much time talking specifically about a-rod. i'm glad you guys have mentioned the other members, talking about other people that are also suspended. which teams will actually be impacted the most at the end of all of this? >> well, i think the yankees, for one, because the big deal that other teams are worried about is if his contract is completely wiped off the books, that brings him down beneath the $189 million luxury tax threshold. if that gets reset, the yankees, who are already the biggest leviathan in all of baseball, are going to be able to spend again. the texas rangers are the other team. nelson cruz hit 25 home runs in year, been really the most consistent hitter in that lineup. he has a chance to be suspended. at this moment he's weighing, does he take it now, serve his games and become a free agent this offseason with a relatively clean

and also incredibly public and inspirational for the public. those were the kind of principles that america was built on. for king to continue that narrative and really bring us into the 21st century is the sort of model of a more equal america, that really, for me, is the staying power and it's something that we're all still trying to achieve. >> yeah. it's a fabulous work that you put together. i could have spent the whole day playing around with it. one of the quotes to underscore what jonathan is saying about the broad reach of dr. king's speech is a quote from malala, human rights activist in pakistan, and she says that his legacy is that those words reached far beyond america's shores and the generation that he spoke about. 50 years beyond the oration, i have a dream, too. we know how profound the impact has been. how is the speech viewed and how was it covered in the context of those times? >> well, it's a fascinating story we learned from interviewing clarence jones. not only was the dream part improvised on that day, he has talked about -- he had given that i have a dream earlier i

about american credibility. do we really think that america has credibility in this region after going to iraq where they didn't have wmd and colluding with iraq against iran on a chemical weapons attack in the '80s? we don't have credibility in this region at all anyway. >> you and i just did a vulcan mind melt because the bottom line, toure, is essentially what you've been arguing about for several years. hundreds of thousands of syrians have been killed in order for this mob regime in damascus to stay in power. the world is essentially said our hands are tied because the russians have a veto. the u.n. cannot do anything. these people are caught in a terrible vice and here we are focused exclusively on his use of chemical weapons which killed maybe 1,000, maybe 3,000 and all the other millions who are refugees. so the bottom line is the same. this is not going to solve the fund amt al problem. assad is going to remain in power. this is not an attempt to engage in regime change. if it deters him from using chemical weapons again, then for all intents and purposes the president achieve

. and to others around the world, i want to make clear once again that america is not interested in spying on ordinary people. our intelligence is focused above all on finding the information that's necessary to protect our people and in many cases protect our allies. it's true. we have a significant capability. what's also true is we show a restraint that many governments around the world don't even think to do, refuse to show. that includes, by the way, some of america's most vocal critics. so we shouldn't forget the difference between the ability of our government to collect information online under strict guidelines and for narrow purposes and the willingness of some other governments to throw their own citizens in prison for what they say online. let me close with one additional thought. the men and women of our intelligence community work every single day to keep us safe because they love this country and believe in our values. they're patriots. i believe that those who have lawfully raised their voices on behalf of privacy and civil liberties are also patriots who love our country a
